QT: The Land of Milk and Honey

This morning Jack and I got up early before John and Abe and we went on a date to QT. Jack has a love affair with QT and believes that all of the worlds ills can be solved with a trip to QT. When you think about it, it is an absolute wonderland of limitless bounty. Aisles and ailsles of soda, slushies, donuts, ice cream, candy, chips and even DVDs. To a child this kind of abundance of treats is very impressive...heck its impressinve to me! The ultimate incentive for Jack is a promise to go to QT. Here is a hilarious conversation we recently had about the role QT plays in Jack's psyche.

Me: Hey maybe if you are really really good today we can go on a date to QT later.
Jack: Yeah! I love QT.
Me: Let me ask you something, If you had the choice between going to heaven or going to QT, which would you choose?
Jack: Isn't there QT in heaven?

So you can see Jack has some pretty high expectations for the hereafter. Forget streets paved with gold...give him free flowing icee machines and greasy hotdogs cooking on rollers.

Too funny:) I love kids:) And I totally agree with Jack, I'm in love with Q.T. as well. What's no to love? There donuts are delicious and you can have Dr. Pepper and mix in vanilla, its wonderful:) I wish I could bribe my children with something like that.

My 5 yr old Isaac is exactly this same way. He is in love with the milkshakes there. And the candy, but especially those milkshakes... you get to put them in the machine and mix 'em up... and mmmm soo yummy! (strawberry is my personal fave)
